DRY YOUR CLOTHES ON A DRYING RACK

Tips to improve your home and lower your energy bill


Clothes dryers are enormous energy hogs. When they’re running, they can often use as much electricity as everything else in your home combined.

what to do

 

Drying your clothes on a drying rack or clothesline might take more effort, but it can save you quite a bit on your electricity bills. If you have a back yard, you can simply string a clothesline between some trees and hang clothes on it to dry. No trees? Try stringing your line from a fence or other fixture. If you live in an apartment or don’t have a back yard that works for hanging a clothesline, you can buy a drying rack for about $10 at a local home improvement store. Make sure to put it in a location where a few drips won’t do any harm.
